Swag Upgrades at the OTN Lounge, Oracle OpenWorld 2008 Edition
By oracletechnet on Sep 03, 2008
This post is strictly about swag - specifically, a new twist on swag that you will enjoy at Oracle OpenWorld, if and only if you visit us at The OTN Lounge.
First of all, let me address the topic of boring plastic conference badges. You've seen one, you've seen them all, right? Not so anymore. Courtesy of OTN, you can now take steps to make that badge representative of the "inner" you. (But don't take this too far!)
Stop by the OTN Lounge to pick up a full sheet of Mikons that you can use to dress up/personalize your show badge. (Thanks to Oracle ACE alum Matt Topper for suggesting this!) So if you want to tell the world that you're a Apex-head, DBA, blogger, WebLogic fan, or whatever, this is your chance! Plus, you'll easily recognize people with the same affinity without the need for minor chit-chat first. It beats putting a sign on your chest!:
Furthermore, those special ones among you who own an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch just may - and I say, may - be able to acquire an OTN-branded Gelaskin if you keep your eyes and ears open (credit to Dan Kildahl!):
What's more, BEA customers can count on receiving a free Welcome Kit (while supplies last). And OTN "alumni" - long-term members who can prove their status by bringing in an OTN membership card (yeah, we actually had one at one point) or other memorabilia - will get yet another gift of appreciation.
As you can see, at OTN, we are working hard to constantly upgrade your swag experience. Remember, the OTN Lounge can be found in Moscone West, Floor 3. Don't be fooled by imitators!
